Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition Diamond

Reviewed By qsource [all]
June 25th, 2023
Version reviewed: 1.3.7 on Mac

This was the biggest (and it is huge) disappointment of any orchestral library I've anticipated as much as I did this one. I'll start amassing all the broken bits of these sample sets and maybe someday I'll post a more complete review. For now, suffice it to say that in the days I've had to explore this library, I don't see myself using it as more than a layer with a much better sample set and engine.

This library is huge. Even with fast fibre internet, it took nearly a day to download it all. Theoretically, you can download just the sounds you want to use, but I did not take the time to figure this out.

Opus engine had huge promise, but so far I have not had enough time to see if it delivers anything. Given the lackluster options within the libraries, I may never take the time to know.

Some of the so-called articulations sound like the main samples were just edited with EQ and such. For example, the strings that have flautando (18 violins does, but many of them do not) sound like a variation on the con sordino. I could not make any sense of why some instruments had many articulations and others had only long and staccato. For my arranging, there are so many missing articulations that this could never be my main library even if I liked it more.

Spaces II

Version reviewed: 2.0.3 on Windows

This is my first reverb plugin that i have bought. I wanted something that was easy to use, and something that had a lot of presets/locations. We do a lot of church and gospel music, so i wanted presets that were recorded in churches and cathedrals. And wow this plugin didn't disappoint.

The presets sounds very natural. They sound real and like you actually are in these locations. No one could tell we had added artificial reverb to our recordings. I adjusted them a little bit to get the perfect amount.

There are over a thousand different presets for different scenarios. Instrument specific reverb and vocal specific reverb and lots more. So i haven't been able to try all of them, but i guess that's not the point either. They will be there when i need them, and whatever i'm recording.

I'm all in all very satisfied. This gave me everything i wanted from a reverb plugin, so it's 5 stars from me. It is a little expensive, but i guess that can be said for most plugins. I'm sure the spent a lot of time and effort creating this plugin.

great sounds, really good engine.

the orchestrator is very powerful and can inspire you to play things you'd probably rarely think of.

only problem is the download process as you need more than a terabyte to install everything so if you want to place everything on a single 1tb ssd, you'll need to use another disk in the process and copy and paste stuff but it's not such a big deal-provided you have space.

Version reviewed: O.0 on Mac


Sorry, but that is ridiculous when there are great Kontakt Instruments (RS-202), GForces String Machine, plenty of Solinas, XILS V+. $49 and that's a stretch. And only $10 per preset - how generous.
